It’s that time of year again – the competition season is inching ever nearer, which means the Horse & Hound show guide is out.
Today’s (27 February) edition of the magazine is a special edition, revamping and rejuvenating our annual early-spring guide to competition.
It features all the key events that should be on every rider and spectator’s radar this season, from dressage to showing, racing to polo, county shows to the Global Champions Tour, by region.
You’ll find lists of shows new to the calendar for 2020, as well as our pick of events in all disciplines at grassroots level. Find out where you should be heading if you want to rub shoulders with your heroes, and those you should put in the diary if you’ve got the children in tow and are looking for a family day out.

“We have changed the style of our show guide this year to celebrate great competition in the UK and our fantastic events and hope the issue will inspire riders for the season ahead.

“I hope you enjoy the new look show guide — do let us know what you think.”
